Grandchildren love the ice cream from the Harbour Café. Wee one especially loves the ice cream in a tub with a chocolate flake. Haven't used ten café itself but it always looks busy

Great wee cafe. Popped in yesterday late afternoon - after 3 - and still got a hot lunch, no problem. (The lady seemed quite surprised when I asked if they were still serving hot food, but so many places finish serving hot food at 3!)....More

Good food, nice staff, pet friendly, inexpensive - don't miss the Cullen Skink!! We had breakfast once and lunch once, well worth a visit. Its not the Ritz, it's not huge, but it does offer good food at a good price...great Coffee and Walnut cake!

Not even a 3 minute walk. Just cross the bridge from the Cafe and you are in the caravan park.
